Impinging jet full field flow velocity and turbulence intensity from PIV measurements in jet impingement study by T.S. O´Donovan (EUROTHERM Award winner, 2008). This image shows a nanochannel with a hot wall (left) and a cold wall (right). Heat transfer in the nanochannel is simulated using molecular dynamics and Monte Carlo methods; the research has been conducted by Nidea, Frijns, van Steenhoven and Markvoort (http://w3.wtb.tue.nl/fileadmin/wtb/wtb_energytechnology/poster_Silvia.pdf). This image of molecular simulation of droplet evaporation is from the paper of Sumardiono and Fischer that was presented at EUROTHERM Seminar 77: Heat and Mass Transfer in Food Processing, held in Parma, Italy in 2005. This image shows phase locked vorticity plots for an impinging synthetic jet with a constant stroke length of 17D at different phases within the ejection and suction stages of the cycle. It is from a paper on synthetic jet heat transfer by McGuinn, Persoons, Valiorgue, O´Donovan and Murray and is in the Proceedings of Eurotherm 2008.

Announcements


We sadly inform the sad news of passing away of Professor Geoffrey Hewitt. He was an Honorary Member and a cofounder of the EUROTHERM Committee

Professor Hewitt's contributions to the field have been recognised by his election to the Royal Society, the Royal Academy of Engineering and the US National Academy of Engineering in addition to international awards. He was inspiring thermal scientist and he was founder of Heat Transfer and Fluid Flow Service. He left us far too soon and will be greatly missed by the international communities.



Special issue dedicated to the seventh European Thermal-Sciences Conference (EUROTHERM 2016) held in Krakow, Poland in June 2016 has been published. Heat and Mass Transfer, August 2018, Volume 54, Issue 8, pp.2173–2174)
